Welcome to the Kickstarter for Victoria Jr.
This book (hopefully the first volume of many) is a collection of short stories about a bold, confident human girl adopted in to a loving family, of monsters. Victoria Jr. was named by The Monster, after his creator, Victor Frankenstein. Her stories range from fantastical bedtime stories, meeting and helping create her new brother and her parents wedding.
Being the only human in a world of creatures and magical things might seem overwhelming to most, but not Victoria. She embraces her uniqueness and strives to create, like her father and her grandfather. The book will be approximately 64 pages in length, full color and initially softcover only. (Part of the stretch goals is to allow for backers to choose softcover or hardcover) The book Victoria Jr. was inspired by a local organization called Sally's House. Sally's House provides a safe place to live for over 300 children a year who've been removed from their parents, caregivers, or troubled homes. I wrote these stories about a little girl who is courageous and free to be herself in a safe loving home. Even if that home is is not typical.
This is my 5th Kickstarter (3 previous successful and 1 not). I love this outlet. I have published books through Image Comics in the past and I loved it. But after using Kickstarter and interacting directly with the people who can make this possible it feels like a no-brainer to come back here. I'm not looking for money to live or to buy me stuff. I really enjoy self publishing books with all of you. It's invigorating and feels right. Putting my fate as a storyteller in your hands. I hope you continue reading and consider helping out!
What can you do?
You can back Victoria Jr. at any level you feel fits you. And share it everywhere. There is no better marketing than word-of-mouth. As you are all aware, books cost money to print and ship. I'm only asking for as much as I need to get this book printed and to cover shipping to all you fine people. Print costs, shipping and fees. If we raise more, then that is awesome. The book will only get better and I have many ideas for stretch goals that are designed to put more and better content in your hands.
We are in a new era of publishing that allows books to be created because of amazing people like you. I wouldn't want to publish any other way.

Risks and challenges
This is my 5th Kickstarter. And with that it means that I've learned a TON over the past few years. The biggest lesson I've learned is to prepare ahead as best I can. After my last book took a few more months to deliver than promised I have done a LOT more pre-planning and I have all of the book laid out ready to finish. I know life can get in the way but I've put in place a streamlined production process for this book. I'm passionate to see this book in print and I can't wait to share it with you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
